- This information relates to newer cars that are purchased in the US, typically 2018 / 2019 models.
- If you're buying an older car or you're outside the US, please double-check whether the car you're interested in has a non-leather, animal-product-free interior.
- When we say "vegan" we mean that to the best of our knowledge the car interior does not contain leather or suede - there may be other animal-derived products (e.g. in the glue in the car or the tires), but information on that is not readily available.
- In every case, we recommend carrying out your own research to ensure the trim level you are interested in is vegan. Although we try to keep all our details accurate, car information, specifications, and interior options do change over time.
- You can research whether a car interior is vegan by checking the manufacturer's website, reading car brochures, contacting the manufacturer's customer service team, and speaking with your local dealer.
- If you find any errors here, please let us know and we'll update these details. Thanks!

's approach to sustainability and corporate social responsibility
We know that many vegans care deeply about how a car manufacturer approaches sustainability and environmentalism. It's also vital these manufacturers treat their employees and community well, and manage their business in a responsible and ethical way.
Here's what they say.
on corporate social responsibility
"At Ford, we believe that by facilitating freedom of movement, we can help create a better world. From supporting local communities where our employees live and work to investing in the talent of the future, we aim to make a positive impact on society.
Project Better World is a coordinated, grassroots initiative managed by Ford Fund and designed to develop transformational programs focused on mobility, education and sustainable communities. In 2017, Ford Fund awarded 234 grants, worth $10.3 million, to 178 nonprofits in 56 countries.
Over the past 10 years, Ford and Ford Fund have invested more than $166 million in Detroit and southeast Michigan, where we were founded back in 1903. Our support assists programs such as the Tiny Homes neighborhood project, a fleet of 20 Ford Mobile Food Pantries and Ford Blue Oval Scholarships. Since 2005, Ford Volunteer Corps has participated in nearly 10,000 local community service projects to make people’s lives better."
achieved a corporate social responsibility score of
out of 100 from CSR hub.
on the environment and sustainability
“Our planet is facing increasing challenges, with profound implications: greater congestion in cities, the rise of human population and climate change.
Over the past decade, we have developed a comprehensive approach to manage climate change and the opportunities of a changing world. Today, this approach includes delivering CO2 reductions in line with the Paris Climate Accord, and investing in the future of mobility.
As well as reducing vehicle and operational emissions, we’re committed to investing $11 billion in electric vehicles, with a goal of putting 40 hybrid and fully electric vehicles on the road by 2022.
We don’t have all the answers. But what we do have is the drive and the commitment to doing things the right way. We are working to make peoples’ lives better through greater access to mobility, more connectivity, less congestion and reduced emissions.
The future is exciting, and together we believe we can make a real difference to the world."
